Quilting a Gift

Yesterday I worked on a quilt.
It is a gift for a young man that I know.

The quilt is green, blue and tan.
It has squares that are intersected by bright strips of fabric. 

I stitched all of the ditches first. 
I used a decorative stitch.

This created squares on the back of the quilt.
Next I added squiggly lines that cross the squares.

It is a labor of love. 
I prayed for this young man as I quilted.

I had such a sense of peace as I worked on it.
I hope the quilt will provide him the same sense of peace.
